What will Nintendo release in 2022?
« on: January 01, 2022, 01:48:18 PM »
Welcome to the 2022 predictions thread, where you can win points and eternal glory!
How it works: please post 1-10 Nintendo related things you think will occur this year, that's it!



I will try to update this thread with all the major Nintendo releases of the year, just like last year.
Barring unforeseen catastrophe (very unlikely in today's world!) we can then once again tally everyone’s points by the end so we can discover who the true Futurologist of our board is.

You can predict anything you want in this thread (please don’t manifest another plague though), but if you wanna COMPETE for those highly desirable POINTS, please humor me and follow these Rules/suggestions:
  • You may submit between 1 and 10 predictions for the year.
  • If you can write your predictions in numbered list/bullet point format that’d be helpful, but it's not required.
  • You get 1 point for being right, half a point for being half-right.
  • No points for guessing stuff we already know! See what we already know… below the line!
  • You have until the first Direct of the year (February 9th) to submit predictions. Obviously we can continue speculation afterwards, but I don’t wanna go through every post again to assign meaningless VERY VALUABLE points.

I need to just keep my predictions short, trying to put too much keeps costing me points in previous years.

1.  Metroid Prime 4 will finally have a reveal trailer, but then be listed as a 2023 release.

2.  A remake of a previous Fire Emblem game will be released later this year. 

3.  The rumored Toyko EAD Donkey Kong game will come out later this year.

4.  Xenoblade 3 will be announced but will have a 2023 release date.

5.  The rumors now say there was never a Metroid Prime Trilogy HD but instead Retro has been remastering the first Metroid Prime.  There seems to be enough smoke coming from this that I'll say Metroid Prime 1 will be coming to the Switch this year.  Whether it's considered a remake or remaster, Switch owners will at least get to play the first Prime game this year.

6.  Pikmin 4 will finally be revealed.

7.  Good Feel will make a new Wario Land game again.

8.  A new 2D Zelda using the Links Awakening remake engine will be revealed, but will have a 2013 release date.

9.  A new 2D Mario will be revealed this year and will be their big Spring 2013 game.  Nintendo is probably hoping the Mario movie at the end of this year will be a huge hit, and will want the first new 2D Mario in a decade to come out shortly after in March of 2013.

10.  Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD will either be announced in the next few months and be out by June, or they won't come out until at least second half of 2023.  Breath of the Wild 2 will be Nintendo's big holiday title but they don't want to risk any thing similar taking attention away, so if they don't come out at least 6 months before Breath of the Wild 2, it'll be 6 months after.  This is the same reason I believe the rumored Xenoblade 3 will be a 2023 release, since I doubt Nintendo wants another one of their open world games taking any attention from Zelda and if Xenoblade 3 was going to come out in the first half of this year it would have probably been announced by now.

  • The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is NOT coming out this year. It's been moved back to the launch of the Switch 2
  • Speaking of the Switch 2, it's going to be announced at E3, with one of its features being backwards compatibility.
  • Metroid Dread gets a DLC expansion, again, I don't play it either.
  • Xenoblade 3 gets announced and released, it's got a whole new art style for the characters, different from 1, X & 2.
  • A brand new Fire Emblem releases, not a remake. Releases in the 2nd half of the year, after E3.
  • A port with new content for NES Remix.
  • I want to try and guess some new IPs with these next few. So let's go with an Intelligent Systems developed puzzle game with multiplayer.
  • Under represented genres on Switch? Let's say Nintendo put out an eShop only, 2D platformer roguelike game.
  • Nintendo release some internally developed visual novel, beautiful art style. The phrase "passion project" is used in the marketing material. Doesn't chart once on the US eShop monthly listings.
  • Lastly let's say some cool rhythm game that's a new franchise, not Rhythm Heaven or Band Brothers or Donkey Konga or something.

Don't have a lot of great ideas this year, but here's what I got:
  • Nintendo will port one first-party GameCube or Wii game to mobile, charge $40 for it, and be flabbergasted when it doesn't sell.
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night gets ported to Switch, but something significant is wrong with it. Could be technical performance, or maybe it's always-online, or has weird microtransactions, idk.
  • Splatoon 3 releases in Summer and becomes a Really Big Deal. It gets some kind of professional league in Japan.
  • NSO N64 adds the following games: Lode Runner 3-D, Tetrisphere, and Hybrid Heaven.
  • People will hope for a new Mario game alongside the movie, but Mario+Rabbids 2 gets that holiday spot instead.
  • A new Kingdom Hearts spin-off is announced exclusively for Switch.
  • Netflix Game Studios publishes a Squid Game themed battle royale thing on Switch/mobile/other platforms.
  • Bandai-Namco resurrects Lost Reavers and somehow gets Nintendo to sign off on adding various character skins. I'm thinking Captain Falcon and Princess Zelda maybe?
  • Koei-Techmo announces Fatal Frame 6 for Halloween 2023, Nintendo's involvement remains unclear.
  • Hollow Knight Silksong is announced as a timed Xbox Game Pass exclusive, Nintendo fans riot on Twitter.

Damn, I didn't know this was the year Nintendo releases time travel.

Breath of the Wild 2 is 2022. It happens. The world is changed for the better.
Xenoblade 3 is announced for 2023.
Metroid Prime gets a trailer but no release year/date. Make us suffer.
Some stupid platformer gets made that is very milquetoast.
Nintendo experiments with roguelike design, or at the very least, Pokemon releases a Rumble game using the mechanics.

Aw, ****. Here we go again.

  • Detective Pikachu finally comes out. I think this year offers the most room for that game to breathe. With Legends Arceus out soon, I don't think we get Gen IX this year, so it's that or Johto re-remakes. And I think Detective Pikachu 2 is more likely. The other option is DLC for SwSh or Legends.
  • Splatoon 3 is delayed to 2023. I think the game is due for a delay.
  • Metroid Prime 4 happens in trailer form.
  • Breath of the Wild 2 is the big holiday release.
  • We got Wario Ware last year, so the party game for 2022 is Rhythm Heaven.
  • I know there are rumors of new hardware, but I'll say no new hardware announcements this year. The Switch is doing great, and the supply chain is not. I think Nintendo would want Switch sales to peter out a little more.
  • There will be at least one HD remake of a GameCube game released on Switch this year. I think Nintendo would want to explore HD ports over putting games on NSO, and I base that opinion on absolutely nothing. I will also count this as a win if the Zelda port rumors are true.
  • Might as well dust this one off: Bayonetta 3 is the Halloween release.
  • I think there's been enough time for a new Donkey Kong game to be announced. I'm not confident enough to predict who's developing.
  • I think I want my wildcard to be either Chibi Robo or Pikmin. So, I'll go with a Chibo Robo announcement this year.

I didn't play last year. I was poking around the forums so I'll throw my hat in:
  • A new Mario game will be released in December to coincide with the movie. It will have nothing to do with the movie.
  • Nintendo will acknowledge Metroid Prime 4's development without mentioning a release date then charge full price for a Metroid Prime remaster. This is very specifically not Metroid Prime Trilogy. (I’ll begrudgingly buy it anyway)
  • Nintendo will also charge full price for a remaster of Metroid: Samus Returns.
  • Splatoon 3 will be released in the Summer.
  • Bayonetta 3 will be released in October. PlatinumGames will justify Hellena Taylor not returning as as the main character because you play as Cereza even though canonically Cereza is Bayonetta. Taylor cameo at the end and to voice grunts and screams for Bayonetta as an unlockable character.
  • The follow up to Breath of the Wild will be delayed. It won't be a sequel to Breath of the Wild.
  • A multiplayer Legend of Zelda will be released for free on Nintendo Switch Online, $19.99 USD to play local/offline.
  • A bunch of Rare games will show up on Nintendo Switch Online including GoldenEye 007. There will be cross-platform online play with the inevitable Xbox Live version.
  • Some weird gimmick peripheral like Labo or Ring Fit Adventure with an accompanying game will be released. Either no one will care or everyone will.
  • I need something outlandish so something something F-Zero something, developed by the Mario Kart team.
EDIT: clarified #9. Also, I wanted to add a prediction not about a release (outside of the numbered list): Nintendo will acknowledge a Switch successor then release no other information. Waiting out the chip shortages before committing to new hardware seems like a more Nintendo thing to do.

This is the second time I’ve heard someone speculate that the Bayonetta in the Bayonetta 3 trailer is not Bayonetta. I mean, I’m sure that Platinum could make this happen with their crack team of expert writers, but I cannot fathom how anyone could come to this conclusion based on a reveal trailer. Care to enlighten me?

Care to enlighten me?
I take no credit for the fan theory. I’m not for or against it nor particularly attached to it, but if we’re just futzing around in a predications thread, this one isn’t that far-fetched.
  • 2017 teaser showed Bayonetta with her original design seemingly getting bisected.
  • Bayonetta’s design in the 2021 trailer takes inspiration from Cereza in Bayonetta 1: round glasses, pigtails with red ribbons (see pic below).
  • Bayonetta’s shadow is different. Either Madama Butterfly got redesigned or that isn’t Madama Butterfly.
  • New voice actress. Hellena Taylor has voiced Bayonetta in every other appearance including Bayonetta: Bloody Fate (the movie), Anarchy Reigns, and Super Smash Bros.
That’s what I remember. I think there are other things, but I’ll leave that to you to look up if you’re interested. It’s a little weird to recast now when Taylor has given no indication that she didn’t want to portray the character anymore. Recasting happens all the time for a variety of reasons. However, in voiceover roles, casting different actors is often used to distinguish between different characters that should have the same/similar voice such as twins or alternate versions of a character.

With the announcement of a new Direct tomorrow, the window for submitting predictions is closing fast!

As of this post you have roughly 31 hours left to post 1 to 10 wild predictions, before the crushing specter of reality will dash our hopes and dreams.

I'm going to predict that we'll see a remake of the second set of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games this year. The Pokémon Company is blatantly milking nostalgia from that era of the series and those games did get some references in BDSP as well.

Oh and BOTW2 will be delayed to 2023

I almost didn't make it in, so time to rush through some predictions and post them when I can! I think I'll recycle some from last time which may have a higher chance happening this year.

-The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will release this year! Probably in November. "Oh, so you're spouting that nonsense again."

-Some sort of new Fire Emblem game will be announced this year, but may not be for release this year. "Yeah and it'll probably still be for you filthy casuals."

-Possibly in celebration of its 30th anniversary, some sort of new Mario Kart release will be announced. "This is at least the 30th time you've said something stupid."

-Super Mario Odyssey 2 baybee it's still gonna happen you'll see! "Do you enjoy embarrassing yourself?"

-We'll finally see footage of Metroid Prime 4 but still no release window, or maybe a vague 2023. "A vaguely sane prediction."

-Some sort of new game as an NSO exclusive (like Tetris and Pac-Man 99), possibly needing the expansion to play. "Your mind needs expansion."

-Crazy guess: something Star Fox-related will be announced. "Cocky little freak."

-Monolith Soft will announced a new game. Probably Xenoblade, but may not be called "Xenoblade Chronicles 3."

-Another HD port of a Wii game, no guesses as to what it could be though. "Wii Port"

-No new Switch models or a successor will be released nor announced this year. "A shortage of brains too it seems."

-Call of Duty finally comes to Switch in some form or another. "Heh heh, heh heh, you said doody, heh heh."

-At least one more port of a Wii U game, could even be the Xenoblade game mentioned earlier with Xenoblade X. "X is such a cool letter."

-At least one more apology for Joy-Con drift. "Your mind is clearing drifting."

-Game Boy added to NSO expansion at the end of the year, no GBC functionality. "I'm colorblind anyway."

-Microsoft finds a way to buy Nintendo, probably for $100 billion. USD, so whatever that is in yen. "You heard it here first folks!"

-Mop it up wins the award for "lamest poster ever" on the NWR forums. "Finally an accurate prediction."

Oh yeah, I guess if the pattern holds, Next Level Games is due for a new game soon eh? I'll boldly state that they're working on a new Donkey Kong game!

(Yeah I know it's only supposed to be ten predictions, the ones after my first ten are just for fun.)

Last year, I predicted there would be a new Kirby game and I was right. I was so happy that I just seemed to be nailing prediction after prediction. But then when the time came to tally, I got no points for Kirby and some other predictions because the Kirby game didn’t release in 2021. I was just trying to predict what might be revealed that year which hadn’t been previously announced but was robbed of victory by some technicality of the thread being about what would release.

I wasn’t sure I was even going to bother with doing predictions this year since clearly the fix was in to keep your old pal, Big K, from winning yet another forum prediction victory. I guess my correctly predicting the date when the Switch would first be revealed has made a lot of people jealous of my prognostication abilities and so now they’re trying to come up excuses to discredit me.

Yet, if I walk away then that just let’s the haters win. So, I guess it’s time to lay down the law once and for all over who’s the best prognosticator. I’ll show you how to be claim victory with Safe predictions. I’ll take you on with some bolder predictions. And I’ll show you true predicting madness. In the end, some form of Khushrenada will be victorious.

With the Direct happening roughly uhhhhh, now? I'm closing submissions.

Feel free to predict all sorts of shenanigans, but know they won't count for the crypto NFT points i'm handing out in December.

Quit trying to find loopholes to deny my predicting talents. The Direct starts in 5 minutes. I made the deadline!  >:(

Breath of the Wild 2 will be Nintendo's big holiday title but they don't want to risk any thing similar taking attention away, so if they don't come out at least 6 months before Breath of the Wild 2, it'll be 6 months after.  This is the same reason I believe the rumored Xenoblade 3 will be a 2023 release, since I doubt Nintendo wants another one of their open world games taking any attention from Zelda and if Xenoblade 3 was going to come out in the first half of this year it would have probably been announced by now.

I know we can't get points anymore but I don't think Breath of the Wild 2 is coming out this year anymore.  If Xenoblade 3 is in September, I kind of have a hard time seeing Nintendo releasing Zelda just 2 months later.  With Xenoblade 2 selling over 2 million and showing huge growth from the previous games, Nintendo probably has hopes of the third game continuing this trend.  Even if Xenoblade 3 has great reviews and word of mouth, Breath of the Wild 2 will completely destroy all that come November.  Any talk of an open world experience on Switch will be all Zelda during the holiday and beyond, killing any legs Xenoblade 3 might have had.

My guess is the rumored Donkey Kong will probably be Nintendo's big holiday game now.  This way Xenoblade 3 will have the holiday season to itself for Switch owners wanting a massive open world experience.  Breath of the Wild 2 is probably a March 2023 title now, to celebrate the 6 year anniversary of the original.

Did Breath of the Wild and Xenoblade 2 not come out in the same year? Am I misremembering things?

There's not necessarily a great deal of crossover between these fanbases.
